Smith's Kids Gettin' Jiggy Wit' Amulet
Variety reports Jayden and Willow Smith, son and daughter of Will and Jada Smith, have signed on to star in an adaptation of a children's graphic novel. The first of the films (or maybe all of them, I'm not certain) is called Amulet.
The story follows a brother and sister who move into their late great-grandfather's house after their dad passes away. They must use his amulet to rescue their newly-single mother and save her from the beast that lures her into an underground world of danger.
I know her husband just died, but come on - a grown-ass woman being lured into an underground world by a beast? Call the cops, or the zoo, or pest control or something - why are you gonna follow some evil monster ANYWHERE underground? That amulet better pack a punch.
